At Church Street Dental Practice, we believe in a preventative approach to oral health and encourage regular appointments. We also provide useful dental advice to help maintain good dental health and show you how to use cleaning tools such as toothbrushes, floss and interdental brushes.
Our friendly, experienced hygienist uses airflow cleaning which is a simple way to effectively remove surface stains from tea, coffee, red wine or tobacco. It is important to try to minimise plaque and tartar deposits as they can cause gum inflammation. This can lead to the development of advanced gum disease which can create significant problems or even tooth loss.
Dental hygiene can have a significant effect, not just on your gums and teeth, but on the rest of your body too, as poor gum health has been linked to a number of other serious conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and strokes – so it really does pay to see your hygienist regularly.
